(ANSA) – BOLOGNA, 30 JUL – “Ahmed Samir has obtained presidential pardon. Why not Patrick? Because there is not the slightest pressure from Italy. We continue to hope that Patrick, too, soon returns free from a trial free to travel to Italy. Meanwhile, we are delighted for Ahmed, who, like Patrick, should never have spent a single day in prison “. Thus, the Italian spokesman of Amnesty International, Riccardo Noury, comments on the granting of pardon by the Egyptian president Al Sisi, to 7 political prisoners sentenced definitively, including the researcher of the Central European University of Vienna, Ahmed Samir Santawi, who was convicted to three years in prison on charges of publishing false news in order to threaten the state, national interests and public order and to sow panic among the population.
